Crongton Live

Hay Festival 2019, 

The Brixton Bard, Alex Wheatle, and actress Clarrie Mae Bent invite you to join them for an interactive event full of discussion, storytelling and live performance exploring Alex’s acclaimed Crongton sequence of YA novels: Liccle Bit, Crongton Knights, Straight Outta Crongton and Home Girl. Set on the fictional South Crong estate, Alex’s books explore family, friendship, love, and loyalty put to the test. The event will focus on the importance of language, style and dialogue, inspiring young writers and performers alike.
